Suzette: Speaking of looking great and feeling great, a few months ago you shared with the readers that you were doing an intense boot camp training, how is that going?

Mia Amber: Boot camp is currently kicking my behind! I was partially sidelined for a few weeks with a knee injury but I'm still hanging in there.  I strongly encourage everyone to find a fitness regimen and stick with it.

Suzette: What results have you noticed since you started?

Mia Amber: I've lost inches in my waist, hips, arms, thighs, neck and stomach.  I no longer cringe at the prospect of doing 200 pushups or 300 sit-ups. I look forward to being at boot camp which is something I never thought would happen.  I also think twice about eating something ridiculous because I don't want the shame of writing it down in my food journal.

Suzette: Please tell me you are exaggerating when you said 200 pushups!

Mia Amber: Not at all! Pyramids are my favorite because when you're done you realize what you've accomplished and it's amazing!

Suzette:  What are pyramids?

Mia Amber: You start with one base exercise (like 20 pushups) then add on another exercise (like 30 squats) then go back to doing pushups, then squats, then add on another exercise and so on until you've done 200 pushups.

Suzette: How has being on the program helped you in other ways besides losing inches?
Is there something about doing the exercises as part of a group that you find particularly appealing?

Mia Amber: I have a greater appreciation for my body and enjoy the challenges.  The boot camp group is great because we are all in it together and we are a bunch of wise guys so training is fun and the difficulty is diminished by the laughter.

Suzette: The camaraderie makes the battle worth it.

Mia Amber: Definitely! We all push each other. For more information on boot camp go to: (no relation).

Suzette: Some people have the misconception that you don't have to work out if you are a plus size model because it's ok to be fat as long as you are pretty. What do you have to say to them?

Mia Amber: Ha! In the words of the legendary Sharon Quinn, "It takes more than being big and pretty to make it as a plus model!" You must develop a regimen to help you maintain your physique and your client list.

Suzette: We've all seen recent photos of plus size models getting slimmer. Whitney Cunningham and Whitney Thompson from America's Next Top Model, Maiysha and others. In your opinion, is this the direction of the industry or do you think this is a personal choice? For instance, I'm sure for Maiysha it was to help market her music.
